Roasted Cherry Dark Chocolate Brownies

1 cup fresh cherries, pitted and halved
2 1/2 cups (1 lb) dark chocolate, chopped in pieces
1/2 cup salted butter
4 eggs
1 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

In a small roasting pan, combine the fresh cherries and 1 tablespoon sugar. Roast for 10 minutes, or until the cherries start releasing juices. Remove cherries from baking pan and place in the refrigerator to cool down.

Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9 inch baking dish (if you use a larger pan, decrease the baking time; likewise, if you use a smaller pan, increase the baking time).

In a double boiler, melt together the dark chocolate and butter until smooth. Remove from heat.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla extract until well blended. Add the melted chocolate and mix until incorporated. Fold in the flour and baking powder. Stir in the cooled, roasted cherries. Pour brownie batter into prepared pan and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until brownies do not jiggle in the center when the pan is shaken (even when baked completely, a toothpick may not come out clean). Do not overbake! These brownies are best when slightly under-baked.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by!
